BIG STICK SMASHES;
THE SECRET SERVICE
In Message to House President De
clares His Statements in Previous
Words to Congress Were Gross-
Wnshlncton. rresldi-nt Itoosctolt's
biff stick crashed down upon the
liendn of Iteprcsentntlves Towney of
MlnncRotu, Smith of Iowa. Htierley of
Kentucky, nnd Fitzgerald of Now Vork,
when the executive sent a sporlal iiu-phiirg
to Uio house of rcprenontatlvps, berating
thofio aotonii for being champions of tho
uccrnaful move to place limitations upon
tho scopn of the secret Borvlce.
The president also decl ireil that the
Interpretation of the Iioubo of the secret
ervlco clau.no In his last mosiingn was
misunderstood, and had thorn boon any
evidence which would point to the neces
sity of an Investigation of members, guch
evidence would long ago havi boon turned
over to tho proper authorities.
Tho mcftsngo was In answer to the ies
olutlon transmitted from the houso In
which the representatives asked for evi
dence upon whleh Mr Uoosevi'lt based
his statements that the "chief nigtiment
In favor of the provision was that the
congrPHimnn did not thomselves wish to
be Investigated by secret service men."
Message of the President
and Reasons Therefor.
Tho message In part-
"To the Itouso of UepresentatlvtB' I
have received tho resolution of the houso
of representatives of December 17, 1PC8,
running as follows.
" 'Whereas, thcio whs contained In the
sundry cH II appropriation bill wlilrli
passed congress at Its last session and be
came a law, a provision In reference to
the employment of the Eocret service In
tho treasury department; and
" 'Whereas, In the last annual message
of tho president of the United States to
the two houses of congress It was stated
In reference to that provision "It Is not
too much to say that this amendment has
been of benefit only, and could bo of ben
efit only, to the criminal classes," and It
wasr further stated "Tho chief argument
In favor of tho provision was that the
congressmen did not themselves wish to
bo Investigated by seciet service men,"
and It was further stated. "Hut If this is
not considered desirable a special excep
tion could be mado In tho law. prohib
iting the tiBo of the secret service force
In Investigating members of congress. It
would be far better to do this than to
do what actually was done, and strive to
prevent or at least to hamper effective
action ngalnst criminals by tho executive
branch of the government;" and
" 'Whereas, tho plain meaning of his
words Is that tho majority of tho con
gressmen were In fear of being Investi
gated by secret service men and Hint con
gress as r wholo was actuated by that
motive In enictlng tho provision In ques
tion. Now. therofore,
" 'He It ltesolved, That the president be
requested to transmit to the house any
evidence upon which ho based his state
ment that the 'chief argument In favor
of tho provision was that the congress
men did not themselves wish to bo In
vestlBated by secret service men.' and
also to transmit to tho house any evi
dence connecting any member of the
houso of representatives of the Sixtieth
congress with corrupt action In his official
capacity, and to Inform the house wheth
er he hna instituted proceedings for tho
punishment of nny such Individual by the
courts or has reported any such alleged
delinquencies to tho house of represent
atives. Cannot Understand Trend of
the House Resolution.
"I am wholly at a loss to understand
the concluding portion of tho resolution.
I have mado no charges of corruption
against congress nor against nny member
of tho present house. If I had proof of
such corruption affecting nny membor of
the house In nny matter as to which tho
federal government has jurisdiction, ac
tion would at once be brought, as was
dona In tho cases of Senators Mitchell
and nurton, and Representatives William
son, Herrmann and Drlggs. nt different
times s(neo I have been president. This
would simply be doing my duty In the
xecutlon nnd enforcement of tho laws
without respect to persons, nut I do not
regard It as within tho provlnco or tho
duties of the president to report to tho
house 'alleged delinquencies' of members,
or tho supposed 'corrupt action' of a
member 'In his official cnpaclty.' The
membership of tho houso Is by the con
stitution placed within the power of the
houso nlnne. In the prosecution of crim
inals and tho enforcement of tho laws
the president must resort to the courts
of tho United States.
"In the third and fourth clauses of the
preamble It Is stated thnt the meaning of
my words Is that 'the mnjorlty of tho
congressmen are In fear of being Inves
tigated by secret service men' and that
congress as a wholo was actuated by
that motlTO in enacting the provision In
question.' nnd thnt this Is on Impeach
ment of tho honor nnd Integrity of the
congress. Theso statements nro not I
think In accordance with tho facts.
Declares He 8ald Nothing
to Warrant the Statement.
"A enreful reading of this message will
show that I said nothing to warrant the
statement thnt 'tho majority of tho con
gressmen wero In fear of being Investi
gated by the secret sorvlco men,' or 'that
congress as a whole was actuated by that
motive,' I did not make nny such state
ment In Uila message. Moreover I have
never made any such statement about
congress as a whole, nor, with a few in
evitable exceptions, about tho members
of congress, in any message or article or
speech. On tho contrary I have always
not only deprecated but vigorously re
sented tho practice of Indiscriminate at
tack upon congress, nnd Indiscriminate
condemnation of all congressmen, wise
and unwise, fit and unfit, good and bad
alike. No one realizes more than I tho
Importation of co-operation between the
executlvo and congress, nnd no one holds
the nuthorlty and dignity of tho congress
of thn United States in higher respect
than I do. I have not the slightest sym
pathy with the practice of judging men,
for good or for 111, not on their several
merits, but In a mass, as members of
one particular body or ono caste, To put
togother all men holding or who have
held a particular ofllce, whether It bo
the oflleo of president, or Judge, or sena
tor, or member of tho house of represent
ative, and to class thorn nil, without re
gard to their Individual differences, as
good or bod, neems to mo utterly Inde
fensible; nnd It Is equally indefonslblo
whether tho good nro fonfounded with tho
bad '.n a heated and unwarranted cham
pionship of all, or In a hoatcd and un
warranted assault upon all.
Charge in Resolution Due
to Denblty of the Solons.
"This allegation In tho resolution, there
fore, must certainly be due to an entire
folluro t understand my message.
"The resolution continues. 'That the
president bo requested to trnnsmlt to tho
hounr nnv e Ulcnce upon whleh he based
his statement that the 'chief argument
In favor of the provision was that tho
congressmen did not themselves wish to
bo Investigated by secret-service men.'
This statement, which was nn attack
upon no one, still less upon the congrtss,
Is sustained by the fact.
"If you will turn to the Conjrrefslonnl
Record for May 1 last, pages KWtf to KCO,
Inclusive, you will find the debate on this
subject. Mr Tawney of Minnesota, Mr,
Smith of Iowa, Mr. Hherley of Kentucky,
nnd Mr Pltzgerald of New Vork, appear
In this debate aa the special champions
of the provision referred to Mohsih Par
sons, Hentiet and Drlscoll were tho lead
ers of those who opposed the adoption
of tho nmendment and upheld the right of
the government to use the most efllclent
means pnsMblo In order to detect crim
inals nnd to prevent and punish crime.
Tho amendment was can led In tho com
mittee of the whole, wheto no votes of
tho Individual members are recorded, so
I am unable to discriminate by mention
ing the mi'mhtri who voted for and the
members who voted ngulnst tho provision,
but Its p-ist.-ige. the Journal tccords, was
greeted with applause. 1 uni well aware,
however, that In any case of IIiIh kind
many members who have no particular
knowledge of the point ut Issue, nro con
tent simply to follow the lead of the
commltteo which had considered the mat
ter, and I have no doubt that many mem
bers of tho house simply followed tho
lend of Messrs. Tawney nnd Smith, with
out having had tho opportunity to know
very much as to tho rights and wrongs
of tho question
Chip Is Knocked Off
"I would not ordlnnrlly attempt In this
way to dlcrrlmlnnto between members of
tho house, but as objection hns been ta
ken to my language, In which I simply
spoke of tho action of the house as n
whole, and ns apparently there Is n de
sire thnt I should thus discriminate, I will
state thnt 1 think tho responsibility rest
ed on the committee on appropriations,
under tho lead of the members whom I
"Now as to tho request of tho congress
that I glvo the evidence for my state
ment that the chief argument In favor
of tho provision was that tho congress
men did not themselves wish to be Inves
tigated by secret service men.
"The part nf the Congressional Record
to which I havo referred nbovc entirely
supports this statement. Two distinct
lines of argument were followed In tho
debate. One concerned tho question
whether the law warranted tho employ
ment of the secret servlco In departments
other thnn the treasury, and this did not
touch the merits of tho servlco In tho
lea-U. The other lino of argument went
to the merits of the service, whether law
fully or unlawfully employed, nnd Ijcra
tho chief If not tho only argument used
was that the sorvlco should bo cut down
nnd restricted becauso Its members had
'shadowed' or Investigated members of
congress and other officers of tho govern
ment. If wo oxnmlno tho debate In de
tall It appears thnt most of whnt was
urged In favor of tho nmendment took tho
form of the hlmplo statement that tho
committee held thnt there had been a
'violation of law' by tho uso of tho secret
ncrvlco for other purposes than suppress
ing counterfeiting (and ono or two other
matters which can be disregarded), and
that such language was now to be used
ns would effectually prevent all such 'vio
lation of law' hereafter. Mr. Tawney, for
Instnnce. nays: 'It was for tho purpose
of stopping tho uso of this service in
every possible way by the departments of
the government thnt this provision was
Inserted'; and Mr. Smith says: 'Now, that
was tho only way In which nny limitation
could bo put upon tho activities of tho
secret service,' Mr. Fitzgerald followed In
the same vein, and by far the largest
part of the argument against tho employ
ment of the secret service was confined
to the statement that it was In 'violation
of law.' Of course, such a statement Is
not In nny way an nrgument In favor of
tho justice of tho provision. It Is not nn
nrgument for the provision nt nil. It Is
simply a statement of what the gentle
men making It conceive to havo been the
Regarding Restrictions of
the Secret Service.
"Thero wns both by Implication and di
rect statement tho assertion that It was
tho law. and ought to bo tho law, t.hat
tho secret servlco should only bo used
to suppress counterfeiting; and that tho
law should bo mado more rigid than over
in this respect.
"Incidentally I may say that in my
Judgment there Is nmplo legnl nuthorlty
for the statement that this appropriation
law to which reference wns mado Im
poses no restrictions whatever upon tho
use of the secret servlco men, but ro
tates solely to tho expenditure of the
money appropriated. Mr. Tuwney In the
debate stated thnt ho had In his pos
session 'a letter from the secretary of the
treasury received a, few days ago" In
which the secretary of the treasury 'him
self admits that the provisions under
which tho appropriation hns been made
have been violated year nfter year for a
number of yenrs In his own department.'
I append herewith as appendix A, tho let
ter referred to. It makes no such admis
sion as that which Mr. Tawney alleges.
It contains on the contrary, as you will
seo by reading It. an 'emphatic protest
agnlnst any such abridgment nf tho
rights delegated to the secretary of tho
treasury by existing law,' and concludes
by nsscrtlng that ho 'Is quite within his
rights in thus employing tho service of
these agents' nnd that tho proposed modi
fication which Mr. Tawney succeeded
In carrying through would be 'distinctly
to tho ndvantuge of violators of criminal
statutes of tho United States.' I cnll at
tention to the fact that In this letter of
Secretary Cortclyou to Mr. Tawney, ns
In my letter to the speaker quoted bo
low, the explicit stutement Is made that
the proposed change will be for the bene
fit of the criminals, n statement which
I simply reiterated in publlo form In my
message to the congress this year, and
which Is also contained In effect In the
report" of tho secretary of tho treasury
to tho congress.
"A enreful rending of tho Congression
al Record will ulso show that practlrnlly
tho only arguments advanced In favor of
tho limitation propobed by Mr. Tnvvney's
committee, beyond what may bo supposed
to be contained by Implication In cer
tain sentences as to 'abuses' which wero
not specified, wero thoso contained in the
repeated statements of Mr. Shorley,
"Mr. Sherley stated thnt there had
been 'pronounced abuses growing out of
the use of the secret service for purposes
other thnn those Intended,' ptitllnc his
stutement In tho fotm of n question, nnd
In the same form further stated that the
'private conduct' of 'members of congress,
senators,' and others ought not to be Irv
vestlgated by tho secret service, nnd thlt
they should not investlgato n 'member of
congress' who had been accused of 'con
duct unbecoming a gentlemnn nnd a
member of congress.' In addition to thess
assertions couched ns questions, he mads
ono positive declarntlon, that 'This secret
service nt one time was used for the pur
pose of looking nlto the personal con
duct of a member of congress.' This ar
gument of Mr, Sherley, the only real ar
gument as to the merits of the question
mndt on behalf of the committee on ap
propriations, will be found in columns 1
nnd 2 of page :tZG, nnd column 1 of parte
Vtf.7 of tho Congressional Record. In col
umn 1 of pago 5556 Mr. Sherley rofers to
the Impropriety of permitting Uio secret
service men to Investlgato men In the
departments. ofTlcers of the army nnd
navy nnd members of congress; In col
umn 1, pnge G657, he refers only to mem
bers of congress Ills speech puts most
weight on the Investigation of members
"Wlint nppenrs in the record Is Mld
out and explained by an article which np
reared In thn Chicago Inter-Ocenn of
January 3, 11KH, under n Washington
headline, nnd which marked the begin
ning of this ugltntlon against the secret
service. It was a spcclnl article or nbout
3,000 words, written, as I was then In
formed nnd now understand, by Mr L
W. Rusbcy, nt thnt time private seerotary
to the spenker of the house. It con
tained nn utterly unwarranted nttack on
tho secret service division of the treas
ury department nnd Its chief.
"At the time of this publication the
work of the secret service, which was
thus nssalltd. Included especially the in
vestigation of great land frauds In the
west, and the securing of evldenco to
help tho department of Justice In tho
beef-trust Investigations nt Chicago,
which resulted In successful prosecutions,
Efforts to Kill Movo
Found to De Unavailing.
"These methods proved unavalUng to
proyont tho wrong. Messrs Tawney nnd
smith, nnd their fellow members on the
npproprlntlons committee ptlil no heed to
the protests: nnd ns the obnoxious pro
vis on was Incorpornted in tho sundry
civil bill, it wns Impossible for mo to con
Rider or discuss It pn Its merits, ns I
Hhould hnvo done had It been In n sep
nrato bill. Therefore I hnvo now taken
tho only method nvallable, that of dis
cussing It In my message to congress; nnd
as all efforts to secure what I regard as
proper treatment of tho subject without
recourse to plain spenklng hnd failed, I
havo spoken plainly nnd directly, and
havo Bet forth the facts In explicit terms
"Since 1901 tho Investigations coverod
by tho secret service dlvlslon-undor the
practice which had been for many yenis
recognized ns proper nnd legitimate, nnd
which had received the sanction of the
highest law officers of tho government
have covered n wldo rango of offenses
ngalnst tho federal law. ny far tho most
Important of theso related to tho publlo
domain, ns to which thcio wns un
covered a far-renclilng und widespread
system of fraudulent transactions Involv
ing both the Illegal ncqulsltlon and the
llegnl fencing of government land; and.
In connection with both theso offensos,
tho crimes of perjury and subornntlon of
perjury. Somo of tho persons Involved
In these violations were of great wraith
nnd of wldo political and social Influence.
Roth their corporate nssoclntlons and
their pollllcnl limitations, nnd tho lawless
character of somo of their employes,
mado tho Investigations not only dlfllcult
but dnngerous. In Colorado ono of tho
Becret Hervlco men was assassinated.
Instances In Which
Secret Service Starred.
"In connection with tho Nobrnokn prose
cution tho government has by decree so
cured the return to tho government of
over n million acres of grnzlng land;
in Colorado of more than 2,000 acres of
minerni land, and suits aro now pending
Involving 150.000 acres more.
"All theso Investigations in the land
cases weio undertaken In consequence
of Mr. Hitchcock, the then secretary
of the Intorlor, becoming convinced thnt
there wero extensive frnuds committed
In his department; and the rnmlflcatlons
of the frnuds were so far-reaching thnt
ho was afraid to trust his own officials
to deal In thoroughgoing fashion with
them. Ono of the secret servlco men ac
cordingly resigned and wns appointed
in the Interior depnrtment to enrry on
this work. Tho first thing he discovered
who wmi. ms special agentB' division or
corps of detectives of the land office of
tho Interior department was largely un
der the control of the land thieves; nnd
In consequence the Investigation. above
rofcrrod to had to be made by socret
"If the present law, for which Messrs.
Tawney, Smith, nnd the other gentle
men I have above montloned are respon
sible, had then been In effect, this ac
tion would Jiavo boon Impossible, and
most of the criminals would unquestion
ably have escaped. No more striking In
stance can be Imnglned of the desirabil
ity of having n central corps of skilled
Investigating ngentB who can at nny time
bo assigned, If necessary In large num
bers, to Investigate somo violation of tho
federal statutes, in no mntter what
branch of the publlo service. In this par
ticular caso most of tho men Investigated
who were publlo servants wero In the
executive branch of tho government. But
In Oregon, where nn enormous ncrenge
of fraudulently nllenated publlo Innd was
recovered for tho government, a United
Statos senator, Mr. Mitchell, nnd n mem
ber of the lower house, Mr. Williamson,
wero convicted on evidence obtnlncd by
men transferred from the secret service,
nnd nnother member of congress was in
dicted." Chief Asks for Reversal
of Action of Solons.
The president then gave a number of
other Instances, nil of which tend to
point out the efficiency of the secret
service, nnd he concludes:
"In conclusion, I most earnestly ask, fc
the name of good government and de
cent administration, In the name of hon
esty nnd for the purpose of bringing
to justice violators of the federal laws
wherever they may be found, whether in
publlo or prlvato life, that the action
taken by the house last year be reversed.
When this action was taken, the senate
committee, under the lead of the late
Senator Allison, having before it a
strongly-worded protest from Secretary
Cortclyou llko that he had sent to Mr.
Tawney, accepted the secretary's views;
and the senate passed the bill In the
shape presented by Senator Allison. In
the conference, however, the house con
ferees Insisted on the retention of the
provision they had Inserted, and the
"Thn chief of the secret service is
paid n salary utterly Inadequate to the
importance of his functions and to the
ndmlrnble way In which ho has per
formed them. I earnestlyjurgo thnt it
may bo Increased to $C,000 per annum. Z
ulso urgo that tho secret service be
placed where It properly belongs, und
